The 12 Schuessler Tissue Salts & 28 Combination Salts

What are the Schuessler Tissue Salts?
Wilhelm Henrich Schussler (1821-1898) devised the homeopathic tissue salts as nutritional therapy, observing that when there was a deficiency of certain ’tissue salts’ then symptoms would appear in the body. He believed that tissue or cell salts were the basic chemicals that every cell in the body requires for optimum health, noting that they are the salts that remain in the ash when a body is completely combusted at cremation. Rather than treating “like with like” (as is the case with orthodox homeopathic medicine) Schuessler tissue remedies treat ailments by correcting imbalances or deficiencies in the body’s cell nutrition. Tissue Salts still maintain physical quantities of the original substances, although in minute form (6x).

Sch-Salt1The Schuessler tissue or cell salts are therefore the original homeopathic salts whose origins can be traced back to the turn of the century when the natural physician, Heinrich Reckeweg (1877-1944) founded ‘Laboratorium EUPHA’,  and started to produce them.

In some parts of the world, such as the UK and Australia, these salts came under the brand name of New Era Tissue Salts and were distributed by Seven Seas. Today New Era is owned by an Italian company and they are distributed in the UK by a British company – To see the New Era Salts click here.

The Schuessler Tissue Salts are the original German tissue salts Seven Seas manufactured in the UK under license and even today they are still manufactured by the Reckeweg family.  They are produced from raw materials of the highest quality and are strictly manufactured in accordance with the German Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia, the European Pharmacopoeia and comply with international production standards.

All the Dr Schuessler ‘Individual or Single Salts’ contain exactly the same ingredients as the former New Era tissue salts. However, not all the ingredients in the ‘Dr Schuessler Combination Salts’ match exactly with New Era but there is a good deal of overlap, making it possible to suggest an equivalent in the Schuessler range. However The Schuessler Combination Salts number more in their range than the New Era (28 as opposed to 18) and so cover a broader spectrum. As is the case with homeopathic treatment some salts can be substituted for each other in the treatment of the same condition. Users say they tend to receive the same results moving between New Era’s own salts and Dr Schuessler’s but the only way is to try them and see for yourself.

As a general precaution to safeguard your health especially where symptoms are of a serious nature, such as in the case of asthma or diabetes, we recommend consulting a physician or professional homeopathic doctor instead of self-caring. If there is any doubt, at any time, as to the state of your health refer the matter to your doctor or health care practitioner.

    I have just heard from Seven Seas that The New Era brand has been sold with effect from 11th September 2013 to Olimed Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of NAMED S.p.A based in Italy. Olimed Limited has been supplied with a list of New Era customers.

      That’s very interesting Carole! I guess we should all watch this space now. There are three categories of license with the MHRA, the last one being the most expensive where homeopathic manufacturers have to submit a portfolio of efficacy to be able to make medical claims. Otherwise, they can sell the products I believe but without claims on bottle. So I wonder what the new manufacturer / distributor will do. Let me know as soon as you hear more please.
